Now is not the time to talk

Standing in the legislature, the place of the people's business, Kevin Krueger says now is not the time to talk about the people's business. Not here, not now. Hark there BC Rail fans, do you hear an echo?
Freddy refuses to discuss T. Richard Turner or anything the former BC Lottery chief, ICBC chairman, investor in gambling operations, Liberal donor and unregistered lobbyist did or said to the Minister about a mushroom cap. It seems that Mr. Turner's named and unnamed gambling associates wanted that new half billion dollar sports stadium roof or else. Else, they would take their new casino elsewhere where they have other bands of friends.

I'm so old, I remember when the only business connecting sports and gambling was conducted by shady characters sitting quietly in a darkened bar chatting with friends who each stopped to pay a loan, an old debt or something.
